Our background

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is committed to helping States fulfill the goals of Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR): to identify individuals with mental illness (MI) and/or intellectual disability (ID); to place such individuals appropriately; and to ensure that they receive the services they need.

To that end, CMS has contracted with Truven Health Analytics to establish the PASRR Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), which will help States improve the quality and effectiveness of PASRR.
